  • Gender And Communication - 1,578 words
    The different ways men and women communicate has been a problem throughout time. This difference in communication style has created conflict in romantic relationships, marriages, and even friendships. To think of a world where men and women communicate on the same level is almost impossible to comprehend. We have been conditioned to believe that the genders will never see on an eye-to-eye basis and have accepted this. But, is it to hard to expect that the genders speak on the same level? From my findings in research, I think there is going to be a change in the way communication in relationships is conducted. This change may even arise in my own lifetime. Studies have shown that women are su ...

  • What A Long Strange Trip Its Been - 1,706 words
    What a long strange trip it has been was the theme from my graduation last year. The only reason that I am telling you that is because that is a classic quote from the leader of the band, Grateful Dead. And if you stop and think about it, it makes complete sense. Life seems to be this strange trip and we are all on this same boat. Jerry Garcia was a great musician, and also a poet. Everything that he said either in his music or through his guitar, which some people would argue that its the greatest ever played. So what if The Grateful Dead played together like a well oiled-machine? So what if Jerry Garcia put blood, sweat, and tears into everything he did? To all of those who still believe i ...

Little did they know that Morrison would not only say, Light My Fire but turn to the camera and yell it. They were basically finished on TV after this stunt.
